    Lol. I had to stop some in the middle of listening. I was like "this is the best you heard for 10 fn years?"

    here is a list of the average RateYourMusic scores for each of the albums. i don't know what anyone is supposed to do with this information, i was just curious and bored and i like looking at numbers. anything above about 3.5 could generally be considered "very good" so most of these do alright in the eyes of the unwashed masses.

    i guess that one thing ya might get out of this data is that if everyone else agrees something is really fucking great then you might want to give it two chances instead of one even if it doesn't stick the first time. personally i'd honestly be less likely to waste my time on giving a 2.80 album a second shot if my first instinct is that it's akin to belle delphine's urinary discharge.

    * i find it a little bit funny that daughters is the only distinctly non-metal album on the list but is the highest ranked (okay maybe anathema is also very not metal but they get the grandfather treatment as heavy metallers in emeritus because of the silent fucking enigma)

    * cultes des ghoules (who?) is the only band to somehow sneak two albums into the proceedings. i thought i had snuck the latest alcest in there but i guess it narrowly missed nomination. imo "spiritual instinct" is better than "ecailles" and i might be alone in the world in thinking that but that's ok.

    nice job, yes I suppose Daughters could be construed as a black sheep of sorts in that it's on the fringes of the usual RC circlejerk ™.

    Eager to watch my selections demolished

    I'm checking out Eternal Champion this morning, although not even that album, the new one. So that's not a very good start.

    I started listening to the BTB&M although the vocals kind of annoyed me. May revisit.

    Daughters being in here is pretty much in tribute to Nate the Great. It's some fuckin' weird shit and I like it, but quite a rare listen for me.

    Vaura being rated 2.86 is absurd. The power of oddriffs compel you. The power of oddriffs compel you!!

    i was listening to some death metal album from the list the other day and couldnt make it through. So just dont take it personal when i say your tastes are shit.

    i fully expect the same from yall. But I can tell you, once the albums are paired up, I will give each one my attention. Right now, I have little motivation to listen to crap. :lol:

    Silly Question:

    Do y'all desire new sounding shit for the 2010s? Because when I see retro death metal acts with Seagrave-esque covers by kids born in 2001 I say GOOD FOR YOU GUYS because they are doing music right, but I don't really want to listen. If I want that sound (and I do), I just buy a '90s album that I haven't yet heard.

    (Acid Witch sounds straight out of 1984 so that's an exception for me. It's like if Celtic Frost got high as fuck and only watched John Carpenter films. Anyhow.)

    I say this because things like Vaura, Ihshan, and Dordeduh sound very modern to me. And not in a bad way, for a change. Which is exactly what I want when I buy a new album in this current accursed era.

    agree 100%

    i've written novels in this forum before about these topics but yeah, do something new or get the fuck out

    THAT BEING SAID, there is a category of bands i like that just have refused to age, that aren't really retro, they just never stopped doing the thing they do. and i do like that when it's quality music. examples from this tournament: summoning, macabre omen, sabbat

    if it's a band i love, i buy their new one even if theyve become ac/dc

    but i have no desire to listen to a band that heard bolt thrower after bolt thrower broke up and now wants to be 2021boltthrower because bolt thrower rules all. I will just listen to Bolt Thrower

    i think that is why i investigated I, Voidhanger records. their shit sounds like no one else. it doesnt always hit the mark, but it's adventurous, and that counts for a lot these days

    Well, shit...maybe it's time for me to actually check out Dorde-DUH! I, admittedly, fully discriminate against this band because of the name.

    Dude, that Daughters album is 100% early SWANS mixed with some Jesus Lizard.

    Indeed.

    Also, this thread has made me join RYM. My gawd, what a fuckin' compendium of riches! That site and Discogs may be all that I ever need.

    Yeah I've still not listened to Dordeduh.

    That Macabre Omen album is ridiculously good. Hadn't heard it before this thread. I feel this one could go far in the tournament.

    It was definitely a good idea compiling the list some time before starting the tournament.

    macabre omen is my fav so far of the few i've heard (and not nominated myself) too

    you guys would BOTH probably like dordeduh. it's progressive, raw, folky, metal, epic, inventive, atmospheric, modern, classic, it's got everything. get some dordeduh in your lives. also i'm assured the band name is very cool and deep in romanian.

    Heh.

    I have only listened to the first (?) Macabre Omen album back in the hey-days of RC and remembering really liking it but, of course, I was really into that style at the time too.
